Various Artists, ‘5 Years Get Physical’ (Get Physical)
Named for Australian hardbody Olivia Newton-John’s ’80s Jazzercise jam, Germany’s Get Physical label has spent the past five years getting crowds to glisten like disco balls with its effortless meshing of ribald Chicago house and rigorous Berlin techno. The double album 5 Years Get Physical offers a set of new remixes from Hot Chip, the Rapture, and Moby, but the real treats are on disc two: Jona’s breathless “Fisherman,” a tawdry monologue by Chelonis R. Jones, and even a remake of Laurie Anderson’s “O Superman,” by M.A.N.D.Y. vs. Booka Shade, that imagines Xanadu anew.
